kermis (4285) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014
Bottle sampled at De Molen 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma of citrus, Belgian yeast going towards saison and fruits. Flavour is light moderate sweet and bitter. Strength of the alcohol coming out in the palate suggesting trippel and dry in the finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Buongiorgio00 (581) - - JAN 9, 2014
Pallida damigella molto intraprendente, dal carattere poco ortodosso. Gusto complesso e sofisticato, scorza di limone, frutta secca e spezie, tra le quali spicca un leggero pizzicorio di coriandolo. Il 7.5 gradi aleggiando come fantasmi, sorso dopo sorso, agendo di soppiatto. Assaggiata alla spina allo stand di Glazen Toren, è stata un’esperienza indimenticabile.

Psytron (1154) - Turku, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Smell of lemon, yeast. Very pale lemon colour, extreme white head which diminishes quickly. Aroma of coriander, honey, citrus, yeast, mead. Fresh and slightly sour when cold, gets sweeter with temperature.

Hair6a11 (1268) - Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Paper Wrapped Bottle; Pour is murky gold with a two finger white head into this glass ; retention is on the poor side but this one has a bit more age than you’d want on it. The nose is grains, citrus, grass, with mild sweetness and a hint of spices. The flavor profile is grains and citrus initial, with a modest bitterness moving forward ; soft fruits like pear and peach come through but it immediately moves towards the grains, belgian yeast, peppery spicing, and grasses that you’d expect. It works well overall, but it doesn’t overly impress either

Erzengel (1912) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
Rating from 2010: My beer had 7%. Witbier-typisches Kräuteraroma. Witbier-trockener Antrunk, zum Hauptteil leicht süßlich-süffig, leichte Kräuter. Vollmundig, mild, aber zu süß. Der Nachgeschmack ist süß-witbierig, koriander, süffig, aber viel zu überlagert-süß.
--> 2% weniger, und dafür kein Zucker hätten dem Bier viel besser getan!
--> enttäuschend süß. 7/11/8/7

Hellgelb, opaltrüb, aroma citrus und etwas koriander, würzig im geschnack, stark karbonisiert, gut trinkbar ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
